    Hi! I own the 2010 13" Macbook pro. I was wondering, since the 320M graphics processor shares ram with the main system (if I remember crorrectly), would I notice a boost in gaming performance if I installed more RAM? Right now I've got 4 gb installed. Thinking of upgrading to 8 gb....

    Depends if your current games max out your RAM. You could load up your game and check out Activity Monitor and check out your usage.

    probably no 'boost' in actual fps; maybe faster loading and closing speed.

    Gaming doesn't really suck up a ton of ram, so 8 gigs probably wouldn't give you much benefit. I didn't see a ton even going from 2 to 4
